It's just 'Conan' to you, thank you very much [Updated]

September 1, 2010 |  8:33 am


TBS has just announced the title of Conan O'Brien's new late-night show. It's plain and simple: "Conan."

"I’m just using 'Conan' and dropping the 'O’Brien' because I want to get away from the whole Irish thing," the comic said in a news release.

On Twitter, where he announced that the title would be made public Wednesday, he added: "The words 'Tonight' and 'Show' aren't on it."

[Updated at 10:41 a.m.: Wanna watch O'Brien announce the title himself? "Conan," which is  "simple, pure like the man himself," premieres on Nov. 8.]
